Day 3, 2007: Freedom of Press

Tuesday, July 24, 2007

For the day 3 of 40-day prayer for the nation, my highlight of the day would be freedom of press. Freedom of press been an issue for quite some time, and escalated recently with much worries. Most of the mainstream newspapers decided to conduct dubious "self-censorship" (to be precised, political motivated self-censorship) which by principle I disagree. Political party owned mainstream newspapers raise concerns of imbalance and selective news reports.

There's two mainstream newspapers I know that still "speaks-up" for the right cause, one is theSun, another is Oriental Daily. You can get them from 7-Eleven.

Yesterday Raja Petra Kamarudin was being lodged a report for sedition. Today, theSun reported this event, but with much reservation, and lied (sadly speaking).

Let's pray for our nation.



PS: You might wonder what's is RPK's actual response, Here is it.

Many people from the media phoned me today to ask me my comments on the police report against Malaysia Today and me. Well, this is my response to that police report against Malaysia Today and me. I would just like to say: go to hell Muhamad the son of Muhamad. You are a disgrace to the Muhamad name. And let me tell you Muhamad the son of Muhamad: you should thank your lucky stars that this is 2007 and not 1907. If this was 1907 instead of 2007 I would challenge you to a duel. It would be a man-to-man, one-to-one duel. It would be a duel to the death with kerises.But no, I don’t think you would accept my challenge to a duel with kerises. You may have two Muhamads in your name but you have no class.


You eloped with the late Agong’s and Sultan of Selangor’s daughter and secretly married her in Thailand. Then you denied it when the late Agong and Sultan of Selangor asked you about it. Only someone with no balls would do this. A man with balls would not deny it. So there is no way you would accept my challenge to a duel with kerises.I know that when the late Agong and Sultan of Selangor, my uncle, found out that you had in fact married his daughter, my cousin, and that you had lied about it, you arranged for Umno Youth to organise an anti-Sultan demonstration. The late Agong and Sultan of Selangor was very hurt and he cancelled his birthday celebration that year. So that year no datukships were awarded and you had to return the money to all those who had paid you for their datukships.This act of yours, Muhamad the son of Muhamad, is treasonous.


If this was 1907 instead of 2007 you would have been put to death. And you accuse me of insulting the Agong? You committed treason. You can send me to jail if you wish. You would have been put to death if this was 1907 instead of 2007.But I know why you made that police report against Malaysia Today and me, Muhamad the son of Muhamad. You want to make a political comeback. You want to contest a parliament seat in the next general election. And you want to be made a federal minister when you win that parliament seat. You hope that the present Deputy Prime Minister, Najib Tun Razak, will fall and that you can take his job. That is why you made that police report against Malaysia Today and me, Muhamad the son of Muhamad.Muhamad the son of Muhamad, see you in hell. And if I go there first I will wait at the gates of hell to greet you on your arrival, Muhamad the son of Muhamad. Ini Anak Raja Bugis bercakap yang mati dengan keris di dalam tangan.
